Rated 5 out of 5 by MyCatLovesLLBean LOVE this jacket!
I bought this jacket in size 6-12mo for my daughter and she started wearing it at 5mo, she was a very plump baby (20lbs/27"). She is now 16mo and 26lbs/32" and it still fits! After 4 seasons of wear, and several washes it still looks brand new. At first I thought $45 was too much to spend on a baby jacket, but LL Bean has such high quality clothing I know it will last for my next children to wear. I love how it is warm and not bulky, and very easy to slip on and off. (which is important when dealing with toddlers). Couldn't be happier with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lauren Nice fleece, runs big
This is a great quality fleece, but it runs quite large. I ordered 12-18 month for my 10 month old and it probably wouldn't fit her until next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jekepf Great jacket for toddlers!
We love this fleece! Bought one in 2T last fall for our 2 year old and he's still wearing it. Bought another in 3T for when he outgrows the 2T; we like it that much! He will turn three in April and still fits the 2T fine...might run a bit big, but nice because it lasts for a long time, and can wear a sweatshirt under if needed! Have had no issues with piling...still looks really nice even after wearing many times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ibuyeverythingonline Nice jacket, runs a little big
I ordered the solid blue fleece for my daughter (she has way too much pink!) in a 3T. She is 31lbs and about 37 inches tall. It's pretty big. Maybe because it was blue and more likely for a boy so cut bigger? Not sure. Great quality though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Super fleece
I gave these as presents to the 2 year old twin daughters of a friend. I purchased them in 3T because I was hoping that the girls would get 2 years of use from them. Their mom says that the fleece is a little large, mostly long sleeves which she just cuffs up, and that the twins both love their pink fleece jackets. They are very soft and the hoods stay on their heads. Mom used them alone in fall and is layering them under a warmer jacket in winter. These were great gifts that are getting tons of use and I am glad that this is such a wonderful jacket.
I definitely say that it runs true to size. Washes well without pilling or shrinking.
The girls love the softness and putting the jacket on is not a chore for mom.
All in all a super fleece!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ConnecticutYankeeInWNC Order One Size Down
I ordered this for my daughter, who is average size for her age (11-months), so I ordered the 12-18 month so she could wear layers underneath and so it would last her through the winter. Wow - It is so big that I will either need to either exchange it or save it for next winter!

My twins girls have now had this fleece in several sizes as they have grown as they are so popular and practical. The fleece is thicker than other fleeces, but not bulky. It keeps them warm and toasty, and looking good. And it washes really well! My friends all look forward to their Bean hand-me-downs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomofToddlers Love this jacket
I did endless research on a jacket that would be good for outdoor play for my toddler during the fall. I ordered a 2t for my 2 year old and it fits perfect, even with room that will probably take her into the early Spring! I think the hood is amazing, it fits perfectly around her head and doesn't come off. It is great because she isn't fond of wearing a hat... For the price, quality and functionality I would highy recommend this jacket for other parents...this jacket in my opinion is fantastic! Goodluck

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBeanShoppingIsFun Hood edges are too loose around face
I have ordered LLBeans fleece jacket for my child every year for the last 4 years and loved it because the hood fit snugly around his face! I ordered it for my younger child recently and was disappointed to find out that LLBean has changed the design of the hood. It is no longer snug around the childs face to protect from the cold and wind. The hood is loose and open around the face. I am returning the jacket I purchased. I hope that next year LLBean will change back the design so that it fits snugly around the face, because it was one of my favorite fleece jackets for my children. I liked to layer this jacket with a down vest on colder days. I liked that my children did not have to wear a hat with this jacket. This jacket now requires a hat to be worn with it, so why have a hood if you have to wear a hat with it? I didn't have to worry about them losing their hat when they were able to wear it without a hat.
